We have already made designs for SZÁMALK before, such as the reconstruction of their 40-year-old headquarter. Among those plans, the 242 people capacity lecture hall of the center building at Etele Street was realized. Already at that point, the possibility of a new building – instead of the questionable efforts of the reconstruction – occurred. The construction works of Budapest Metro 4 and its possible subcenter in the vicinity of the neighboring Kelenföld Railway Station revalued the site. Finally the client decided to sell the lot and construct a new building. The site for this new building is near the crossing of Etele Street and Tétényi Street, and is actually not so far from the old one. An elementary school was demolished here, which was previously closed due to the lack of students. The design program consists of mainly rooms used by Gábor Dénes College and other educational institutes. The client asked for lecture halls of different sizes (the main profile is the education of computer studies and economics on advanced level), offices for a big staff and other rooms to support their service. A lecture hall for 200 people, a cold buffet-kitchen and an underground parking space were also established here.
